Edith Silva is a Chicago based artist in her final year attending Columbia College Chicago with a major in Illustration and a minor in Animation.
She explores themes of natural beauty with an eerie and unsettling twist. Her work often features subjects with extra limbs and limited color palettes. She is both familiar with digital and traditional media. Watercolor, ink, gouache, marker and acrylic paint fall under her use of traditional media.
She aims to evoke feelings of unease through her work with a mix of familiar subjects, such as animals and plants, while adding extra details in the line art to make the viewer look twice at the detailed line art.
